What Games Do You Keep Coming Back To?

Some games you can't stay away from. No matter how much you try to say you're done, it doesn't matter. Somehow you find it on the screen in front of you and that means it's time to play.

For me, that game is Spelunky.

I've always held to the idea that good games stay good. If you enjoyed a game several years ago then you're pretty likely to still enjoy it again now. It's not always true but that doesn't stop me from wanting to revisit games from time to time.

Spelunky is a game that I've played so much that, at one point, it just became something to do with my hands while I was sitting idly at my desk. So I made a conscious effort to stop playing. Yet from time to time the siren calls and I must heads into the mines to die on spikes.

Pro wrestler Cody Rhodes used to play A Link To The Past every year. Maybe he still does. Rhodes wouldn't be alone in doing so, classic games are perfect for regular revisits. You get the nostalgia kick on top of the great gameplay.

So what games do you keep coming back to?

    Both Spelunky and Binding of Isaac are my go to favourites.

    I keep playing rogue-likes I can put on a handheld, really.

    Used to be any late 90's/early 2000's platformers (Spyro, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter)...

    These days it's Darkest Dungeon, Don't Starve and Overwatch. I can't escape any of those guys, their claws are in deep!

    Rocket league, overwatch, rainbow six siege, bloodborne

    The original Puzzle Quest
    System Shock 2
    Advance Wars

    Project Diva Future Tone is my default go to when I don't really know what I want to play. In terms of more annual titles I tend to play the Breath of Fire games, Suikoden II, Four Heroes of Light and one of the Saints Row games.

    Kingdom Hearts, mainly 2, BBS and 1.

    Whatever Monster Hunter is the latest at the time.


    Civ Rev, and Sid Meiers Pirates.

    You could say A Sid Flashback.

    I'll get my coat.

    risk of rain, broforce, Ronin, Spelunky, Skyrim, GTA V.

    FTL, Pirates, Spelunky. I love a rogue like something and Pirates is just where it's at and always will be.

    I can't stop playing Splatoon someone send help.

    Can never stop playing CS, been 19 years and still fire it up at least once a month.

    Also go back to FF 7,8 & 9 fairly often, Never make it through but the memories are there.

    Diablo 3 - seasons on consoles have drawn me back in
    Mass Effect 3 (single player & multiplayer) - play at least once a month

    Uta no Prince-sama: Shining Live, rhe rhythm game of so things! Send help. I downloaded it to make fun of it and ended up unironically enjoying it and becoming somewhat addicted it.

    Half-Life at least once a year and Halo:CE all the time.
